How to set up xbox live? i have wireless, but it still doesnt work.


The 360 requires a wireless adapter, which I assume you already have. This would connect to your wireless router or other wireless access point you have in the house.

If you are having issues connecting still, make sure your High Speed modem is a docsis2.0 modem or higher.

If you are still unable to connect through your wireless, I suggest plugging an ethernet cable directly from your router into your 360. This is to make sure you get the best and most reliable connection.

If location of router versus location of XBox is a problem, a long ethernet cable can be purchased from a website like Newegg or Amazon for a cheap price.

I just bought this router and am trying to get it connect with a Verison wirelss USB mobile broadband. How can I connect it to my computer and an Xbox 360?


For Verizon i found that Currently, the DIR-412 Mobile Broadband Wireless Router is the only D-Link router that is 3G compatible. The DIR-412 supports 3G USB adapters complying with HSUPA/HSDPA/EV-DO/TD-SCDMA networks and works with most major cellular carriers (AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, Rogers, Telus, Bell, etc).
D-Link routers empower gamers to easily connect their Microsoft Xbox to network and experience lag-free online gaming. All you need is a D-Link router to go along with your broadband connection and Xbox Live subscription and you can go head to head with friends and adversaries from around the world.

The D-Link DI-624 Wireless Broadband Router, DI-614+ Wireless Broadband Router, and the D-Link DI-604 Broadband Router have all passed the tests for compatibility with Microsoft Xbox Live with specific firmware. Just download the specific compatible firmware listed below to your D-Link router before connecting to Xbox Live.

  • Click here for Xbox Live setup instructions with a router.
  • For Xbox Live support, please visit www.xbox.com.

    My son has an xbox 360 with an xbox Live account it works fine except when he tries to go online from his friends houses apparently it comes up There's a problem with the credentials your using to sign in...


    Hi. This must be the router password that xbox is trying to connect. Your home routers password is basically saved to your xbox logon credentials. If the xbox will connect to another wireless router and sees that the password he knows is not the password that was save inside the console then you will be getting that error message. Solution is type the password of your sons friends router then this will solve the issue.

    Xbox live on netopia router


    Okay, to connect to Xbox Live using Wireless Internet you will need this:

    One Xbox Wireless connection unit, There are two types, the black and white versions. The black one is able to pick up the most diverse signals and has a higher potential for speed so I recommend that one.
    You will also need, of course, a high speed internet source (modem) and a wireless router connected to the modem. When looking for wireless routers look for ones with marks claiming to be compatible with Xbox Live or a Windows OS. Those have been tested to work with Xbox.

    Before trying to set up your Xbox Live, make sure your Router is set up with your computer, and set to be used as a wireless router. That's another tip all together but just follow your installation CD.

    Okay so here we go!

    First, Connect the wireless networking adapter to the back of your Xbox.
    If you have a network cable plugged into your xbox, unplug it. Check to make sure the adapter's light is on.


    Here's what the light's mean:
    On the gray adapter:
    No light: It's not getting enough power( try plugging it another USB slot)
    Green light: It is connected to a wireless router, gateway or wireless access point.
    Red light: It is not connected, and is ready for configuration.
    Flashing red: There is a malfunction. (try again, if the problem persists return it for a replacement)

    On the black adapter:
    No light: It's not getting enough power( try plugging it another USB slot)
    Green light: It is connected to a wireless router2_bing.gif, gateway or wireless access point.
    Flashing green: The adapter is attempting to connect to a wireless router, gateway, or access point.
    Red light: It is not connected, and is ready for configuration.
    Flashing red: There is a malfunction. (try again, if the problem persists return it for a replacement)

    Now the CONFIGURATION, the reason most of you are reading this:

    Turn your Xbox on and go to "My Xbox"
    Go to "System Settings"
    Go to "Network Settings"
    Go to "Configure Network"
    On the basic settings tab select "Wireless mode"
    Select "Scan for Networks"
    Select your Wireless source.

    NOTE: If your Network isn't listed you will have to manually enter it.
    To do this select "Specify unlisted network"
    You will need to enter your SSID
    Then choose which security you used to set it up on your Computer (ie: WPA, WEP...) Then enter your security code. If there is no code then select "no security"

    Your adapter should have a green light now.

    Now go back to "Network Settings" and select "Test Xbox Live2_bing.gif Connection"

    If it works your good to go!

    Hope this tip helps :) Tell your friends and ratings are nice. Just kidding, I just hope I helped.

    Open or forward ports on the router for your Xbox. Get the ports from Xbox live then configure the router to allow those ports to pass.

    I am trying to set up xbox live for my son but when i try to go live on the xbox dashboard it says that wireless network not connected but i have a wireless network running in my house and need to know how...


    1. Connect the appropriate wireless network adapter to the console. On the Xbox, a Wi-Fi adapter that connects to the Ethernet port (sometimes also called a wireless network bridge) must be used. Alternatively, the Xbox 360 is also designed to work with certain Wi-Fi game adapters that connect to a USB port.

    2. Turn on the console and navigate to the wireless settings screen. On the Xbox, the menu path is "Settings -> Network Settings -> Advanced -> Wireless -> Settings" On the Xbox 360, the menu path is "System -> Network Settings -> Edit Settings."

    3. Set the SSID (network name) on the Xbox to match that of the wireless router. If your wireless router has enabled SSID broadcast, the SSID name should appear pre-selected on the Xbox display. Otherwise, select the "Specify Unlisted Network" option and enter the SSID there.

    4. Specify "Infrastructure" as the Network Mode. (Infrastructure is the mode used by wireless routers.)

    5. Set the Security Type to match that of the wireless router. If your router uses WPA encryption and the type of adapter connected to the Xbox does not support WPA, you will need to change your router settings to use WEP encryption instead. Note that the standard Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Network Adapter supports WPA while the standard Microsoft Xbox Wireless Adapter (MN-740) only supports WEP.
    6. Save your settings and verify the network is functional.

      On the Xbox, the Wireless Status screen displays whether a connection has successfully been made with the wireless router, and the Connect Status screen displays whether a connection has successfully been made through the Internet to Xbox Live.

      On the Xbox 360, use the "Test Xbox Live Connection" option instead.
    Tips:
    1. Even when your wireless connection between the Xbox and the router is working perfectly, you may still experience difficulty connecting to Xbox Live. These issues can be caused by the quality of your Internet connection or the firewall and Network Address Translation (NAT) settings of your wireless router. Additional troubleshooting may be required in these areas to achieve reliable Xbox Live connections.
    What You Need:
    • Active Xbox Live subscription (to access services)
